      Isn't that half the fun of Corrado ownership? Months spent searching and tracking down NLA parts, buying wrecks to keep in the backyard for that rainy day when the bumper clips on your daily break?

      makes me feel good about the tan ones I found, even if the seller was a moron but still managed to get all the piece's in the package out of dumb luck. (well except the center console and handle spacers. He sent me 2 American center console covers... from Germany!?!?

      Another one with poorly fitted wheels

      Besides those, nice looking 'Rado - curious to know what mirrors are those (don't quite look like Porsche Cup mirrors either)

      I don't like much of anything on that car, it's way to "try hard" skinny tires don't belong on vr6's or corrados. Door handles look crooked. Are those side marker just screwed onto the bumper?
      This car get from me at least. It's not ugly just too much is going on that is all.

      the only thing that jumped out at me, when going to the article, was the poor transition from TT center console to the rear armrest. First, the TT trim is cracked and broken, 2nd, he didn't make any effort to cover the transition or blend the two concepts. I would have either ran some carpet there, or run the non-armrest cushions and cut off the stand-off.
